In a speech Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. details how he plans to get reparations from the United States government, a few weeks later, he would be assassinated.
Note: In 1999 the King family won a civil suit against the federal government, proving the United States took part in the conspiracy to assassinate the great civil rights leader.
Martin Luther King Jr. Quote on Reparations in 1968:
“At the very same time that America refused to give the Negro any land, through an act of Congress our government was giving away million of acres of land in the West and Midwest, which meant it was willing to undergird its White peasants from Europe with an economic floor.
But, not only did they give them land, they built land grant colleges with government money to teach them how to farm. Not only that, they provided county agents to further their expertise in farming. Not only that, they provided low interest rates in order that they could mechanize their farms. Not only that, today, many of these people are receiving federal subsidies not to farm, and they are the very people telling the Black man that he ought to lift himself by his own bootstraps.
And this is what we are faced with, and this is the reality. Now, when we come to Washington in this campaign, we are coming to get our check.”

IT’S NOT ALL OUR LEADERS FAULT
THEY ALLOW THEMSELVES TO BE BOUGHT
EVERY ONE THAT STANDS UP HAS BEEN TAKEN OUT
SO IF WE TRULY WANT OUR FREEDOM
WE MUST GO TO WAR AND SHOUT
BUT NOT WITH OUR GUNS OR FIST
SINCE THEY ARE RENDERED USELESS AGAINST THE MATRIX
